Letter from the Board
It is with great enthusiasm we welcome you to the twentieth year of Sussex Academy. We are excited that 2020 will also be the very first year for our new Sussex Academy Elementary School! We are a Board composed of parents and professionals from various backgrounds and expertise, but what we all have in common is an unwavering commitment to providing the best possible educational home for every one of our students. This is a very challenging and unprecedented time; we have prioritized health, safety, and equitable learning opportunities for all Sussex Academy students. The school administration has worked under the advisement, and in consultation with, leading experts to devise a dynamic and flexible educational plan with an open, caring, stimulating, and safe learning experience for every student. Success is measured one child at a time, and we will strive to make this year a successful one marked by meaningful learning and growth, even in the midst of the ever-changing circumstances we find ourselves in.
Sussex Academy was the first charter school in Sussex County, and has been a trailblazer in the Delaware educational community in many ways. We have worked hard to achieve a reputation of academic excellence, in addition to creating a school environment that promotes social and emotional growth, advanced learning, character development, and opportunities that nurture the whole child. We hold our faculty and staff to high standards of professional excellence and prioritize continued growth and development in the latest and best practices for the evolving educational landscape. Our goal is to prepare each student for the challenges of life faced beyond Sussex Academy.
We view our relationship with you as partners in supporting the mission of this school and working with us to provide the best possible educational experience for your child. Thank you for your partnership and trust in cultivating students of distinction, with the knowledge, skills and values to become successful and productive citizens in the 21st century.
